Why should I see it?
- Winner of multiple awards including the Pulitzer Prize and the Olivier for Best New Musical
- The soundtrack won the Grammy for Best Musical Theater album
- International phenomenon
“Hamilton is the one that’s worth the hype. Not into hip hop? Don’t be put off! The soundtrack is incredibly clever and features some more traditional musical theatre numbers too. Add in the superb choreography, talented cast and an interesting historical story, and you’ve got a great night out.”
How do I get cheap tickets?
Check out the tips below to discover the best deal for your trip, whether it’s a spontaneous visit or a day out planned months in advance. If you want more detail, check out my dedicated blog post.
Best last-minute deal
The cheapest way to see Hamilton from the best seats is to win the lottery! You can enter every Friday for the next full week of performances. Tickets are up for grabs for just £10 if you win, and they’re good ones too! Just go to the TodayTix app and select the performances you want to try your luck for.
Of course, there’s no guarantee of winning the lottery. So if you’re looking for a bargain at the last minute, you’ll have to try your luck booking directly. Hamilton loves a bit of dynamic pricing, so if a performance is looking quiet they have been known to reduce seats in the grand circle to £20. If seats are sold out, they add standing tickets on the day for just £10. The standing area is at the back of the grand circle. You may miss some action on the balcony on stage and you will need to stand for at least an hour per act, but reviews are generally positive for the price.
Best for booking ahead
The cheapest seats in the house are the £20 grand circle slips. There are only 8 available per show, so they always go the quickest – make sure you book as soon as your date is released if you want them. These seats are restricted view, and you do have to lean forward, so if you’re looking for a clear view you will have to up your budget a bit. The next cheapest price bracket is almost double the price at £39.50, but offers a much better seat for your money. These seats are found at the back or sides of the grand circle, and although they feel a little far away they generally offer a very good view. Go as central and as close as possible for the best experience.
